How much time I did lose looking at "services" when I actually only
needed a "composed operation"... (at that point the ASIO docs had one
example of a service, but none of a "composed operation"; now it has
of both, so it's improving).

When you explain it it actually sounds obvious... and I feel silly for
not seeing it. You do that a lot to me.
